takinc care of him in a recent Illness wn
heard before Justice John E. Moree In

and costs. The defendant, represented

Charles A. Boyden was in Springfield
Wednesday to look after the Interests of
the E. It., Clark Automobile Co., In con
noctlon with the financial embarrassment
of the Knox Automobile company of
Springfield, which was reported last Mon
day. Mr. Boyden found, ns has boon
stated In Springfield papers, that the dlf
Acuities of the company are due to tn
large extension of its business withou
adenuate capital, coupled with the fact
that, owing to the late nnd unfavorable
season, a good many machines whlcli had
been ordered were not taken oft the com
pany's hands. Tho oncers' salaries seem
to have been out of proportion to the
company's business. The standing of tb
company in Springfield Is good and there
is no doubt about the excellence or it
machines. It will not go Into bankruptcy
but will be operated by a trustee, and
no doubt Is felt that It will pull safely
through Its difficulties.
Tho project of running nn extra tral
to Vernon Saturday nights toaccommodate
tho employes nt the dam who wish t
come to Brattleboro to trade Saturdays
which was broached In the board of
trade recently, found favor in the eyes
of the Central Vermont railroad and the
train will make Its first trip tomorrow
night, leaving at 10.30 o'clock and will run
regulaily every Saturday. When the
board of trade took tho matter up It
was proposed that merchants contrlbut
funds to pay for running the train a:
they ' would reap tho benefit of the ex
tra trade coming to town. After con
ferrlng with the Central Vermont official
this was found unnecessary, as tho offl
clals decided that the train would bo
paling proposition for tho road. Even
tually there will bo some 200 American
workmen employed at tho dam, besides
tho large number of Italians. These can
come to Brattleboro easily enough to do
their trading but there was no way for
them to get back In the evening, th
last train leaving at 4.23 in tho after
noon. The board of trade is to bo con
gratulated on the outcome.
A campaign of advertising for th
benefit of Brattleboro is being planned
and tho funds out of which the cost will
be paid are In view. Citizens of tho town
subscribed S1475 seven years ago for the
purpose of having a survey made, as tho
first step toward securing the construe
Hon of a dam across tho Connecticut
river. No string was nttached to the
money and no subscriber over expected
to get his money back. In fact, many of
the subscribers had some doubt about
tho dam ever being built. Now the con
structlon of the dam Is assured, and In
addition those whoso Interest In the wel
fare of tho town prompted them to make
tho dam a possibility have been nssured
that within a few days their contrlbu
Hons will bo refunded. But instead o
putting tlie money In their pockets, th
subscribers, or practically all of them,
will make it do the town another good
turn by putting It Into a municipal ad
vertlslng fund, to advertise the ndvan
tages which nro accruing from Its first
expenditure. They will not be alone In
tho enterprise, however, for the board of
trade hns decided to appropriate several
hundred dollars, and officials of the Con
nectlcut River Power company, who are
behind the dam project, have promised a
substantial addition to tho fund. Brat

Summer Clearance Sale
The House of Good Values
Unmatched for its Bargain Opportunities
We have planned this sale with a view to moving every dollar's worth of
surplus summer stock, in the shortest possible time, and one of the strongest
leasons why this particular sale outranks all previous sales in money saving im
portance is, we have had a very backward season, stocks are heavy, and to re
duce them quickly, the price reductions have been radical in every department.
We have let profits go by the board, and in many instances where cost is in the
way, that too has been lost sight of. Our one thought while making ready for
this sale has been to make the price that will appeal to every patron of this
store, from the standpoint of economy, and we leave it to your trading intell,
gence to do the rest.
